Buy in, grab your stack, play online poker tournaments, and outlast the field on the best tournaments platform ever, Natural8!

Each with its own unique ebb and flow, tournaments are thrilling poker games that give you a chance of winning a prize many times greater than your buy-in.

In a poker tournament, players typically begin with the same number of chips. The winner of the tournament is the one that eventually acquires all the chips in play. Unlike cash games, tournaments are scheduled events that require stamina, perseverance, and a whole different poker strategy.

From freeroll games and satellites to the big Sunday events, we have tournaments of every shape, size, and format for you. There's $200,000,000 in guaranteed prize money to be won each month, with all buy-ins and guarantees doubled on Sundays!

You don't have to go to Las Vegas to win big and play with the best poker players. You can start playing in the comforts of your own home and experience the same thrill as live events. The best part about online poker sites is that you can play multi table tournaments so that you can maximise your time and winnings.

Below you can find the list of major poker tournaments and all the reasons why it might be worth entering them! We've got you covered with No Limit Hold'em and Pot Limit Omaha events all day long. Find the best poker tournament for you and enjoy the winnings in Asia's largest online poker room.

Important Information About Poker Tournaments

Guaranteed Tournaments

Guaranteed tournaments have a guaranteed prize pool (ex. $2000 guaranteed). The guaranteed amount will be distributed as promised even if the total collected buy-in amount falls short of the guaranteed amount.

Please note that our regular tournaments contribute the collected buy-in amount to the prize pool. However, if there are more buy-ins than the guaranteed prize pool, the total money pool increases accordingly. If applicable, the guaranteed prize amount for each tournament is indicated in the tournament lobby.


A Freezeout is essentially a single elimination tournament where players are only allowed a single buy-in. At the start of the tournament, the players will receive an equal amount of tournament chips. If a player loses all of their chips they will be eliminated from the tournament and will not be able to re-enter.

Progressive Bounty

In a Progressive Knockout (PKO) Bounty tournament, each player has a bounty on his or her head. When a player is knocked out of a tournament, half of the corresponding player’s bounty is added on to the bounty of the player who knocks him or her out. The other half of the knocked-out player’s bounty is awarded to the player who knocked them out as an instant cash prize.

Mystery Bounty

Mystery Bounty offers an exciting twist to our regular Bounty series. Players get rewarded for each player they send home but there's a twist - the value of the bounties are a mystery.

Rebuy Tournaments

At the start of the tournament, all players will receive an equal amount of tournament chips. During the tournament, every player has the opportunity to purchase additional chips equivalent to the starting chip stack. This is called a Rebuy and players have the option to rebuy at any time during the specified time when their current chip amount is equal to or below the starting chips. The time allotted for rebuys and the number of rebuys available are different depending on the tournament. Details regarding rebuy tournaments are indicated in the tournament lobby, if applicable.


In an N-Stack Tournament, each player receives a set number of chip stacks upon registration (this set number is also known as ‘N’). Immediately prior to taking their seat in the tournament, the player can decide how many of these stacks they will start with and how many to keep in reserve to use later.

Each chip stack can be thought of as a ‘bullet’; players can begin the tournament with all available bullets in their starting stack. At least one stack must be used when a player first begins to play.

Reserved stacks can be called into use at any time up until the end of late registration or alternatively by a set time (the time at which reserved stacks can be used will be specified in the tournament lobby); if a player has not used their reserved stacks by this time, they will be added to the player’s live stack automatically.


Satellite tournaments are qualifying events that give you an opportunity to win a seat at the main tournaments' tables with a much lower buy-in. These Satellites are typically in turbo or regular speed types and run between 30 to 90 minutes before the main event. Satellite winners will then qualify to the target tournament and be able to participate without having to pay the regular buy-in amount.

Check out our guide to Satellite Tournaments for more information.

Tournament Overlays

Tournament Overlays refers to the gap between a poker tournament's guaranteed prize pool and the actual size of the prize pool generated by entrants. For example, if a tournament has a guaranteed prize pool of $1,000, a buy in of $10 and 90 players enter, the players will contribute only $900 to the prizepool. This would give the tournament an overlay of $100.


Flipout tournaments are all-in tournaments where players will go all-in on every hand until a winner is decided. It removes all player choice, leaving the outcome of the game up to how the cards fall. This fun, exciting and totally random game does not require players to be logged in to play. Players just need to register before the game starts and wait for the results.

Sit & Go

Sit and Go tournaments (SNGs) are online poker tournaments that start when a preset number of players have signed up. There is no fixed schedule and the event will begin as soon as the required number of players have been met.


Freerolls are free-to-play poker tournaments, meaning you won’t be charged any entry/buy-in fee.


A 'shootout' is a type of tournament where a player must win and be the last one standing at their table in order to move onto the next round or final table. Most other tournament formats tend to merge tables in order to maintain balance among the field but a shootout will require you to play out the full table before progressing.

Hyper Turbo & Turbo Tournaments

Hyper Turbo and Turbo tournaments are fast-paced variations of regular tournaments with shorter blind levels and less time to act. Turbo tournaments typically have 5 minute blind levels while Hyper Turbo tournaments will feature 3 minute blind levels.

Private Tournaments

Private tournaments are tournaments that are exclusively on Natural8. They are either held for a particular group of players for the purpose of promotion or open to all Natural8 players to participate.
